Sorry would it need it in front of me and a four poster lift to even try work out whats wrong ,your english description leaves a lot to be desired but if it is what i think the fault sounds like then i would check the rear engine mount /stabliser but with a good look then i cannot advise any further only to consult a local mechanic with a hoist or a pit .

SOURCE: toyota corolla 1.6 1997 vibration after clutch change

Try checking the engine/transmission mounts, one of them may not have been reinstalled properly, or worn out, causing a vibration. If the car is able to move with the new clutch, and it seems to work, I wouldn't say the clutch was put in wrong. Also check the wires around the engine/transmission, you may have knocked something loose as well.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Excessive vibration of the steering column

Sound more like out of balance tires, or bent wheel. Unless this vibration is even in park. Then I would say something is up against a part of the steering that shouldn't be.. Or your exhaust system is bent or touching part of the undercarriage that it shouldn't be. Was the car ever wrecked?

SOURCE: Car jerks to left w/no warning

My opinion, not a good car. But that is a different story. It would be easiest to bring the car in for an alignment. The technician will tell you what the car needs to do the alignment. But if you want to do it yourself then you will need to inspect all the steering componants (tie-rods,struts, lower ball joint, wheel bearings, brakes, wheels, tire wear,tread pattern, and tire pressure, and lug nuts (loose or overtightened). Good luck.

92 Isuzu pickup first start of day rough

Hi Dustin, I'm not sure if we're talking about a diesel vehicle or one with fuel injection or using a carburetor? If it has fuel injection, have the temperature sensor (with two cables) inspected for correct operation. If we're dealing with a vehicle with a carburetor, inspect the automatic choke operation. If it's diesel have the fuel filter pump housing inspected for air leakage. If it is diesel and the problem becomes more apparent, the injector pump and injectors may require repair, service and adjustment. Regards John

I believe that what you are experiencing is whats called FAILSAFE MODE, which means its stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear due to recent change in driving habits.... maybe you got on the accelerator a little too rapidly or sharp corner too fast.... All, Nissan's, Toyo's, and most cars have this mode wich is meant to prevent further damage to the trans. This may not be what your experiencing but it sounds like the symptoms, sluggish, slow acceleration,.......
have you experiencs and shifting issues, is it an auto or manual trans? if you have a trans power or over drive button and or light on dash or shifter for automatic, observe when you start it up next time and you may find it blinks 8-10-12 times.... if so you have damaged the trans due to mismatched/mixed tire sizes and or tread depth, and brans or tread styles.... yes it doesn't just ruin 4x4 auto trans,.... it kills any transmission after unknowingly driving around with incorrect tires. I work for Nissan and have for 26 years and i have seen chain tire dealers like Walmart, Sears Roebuck, Midas, Tire Wharehouse, Pepboys, and dozens of others cause the transmission planetary-gear failure; in mostly automatic 4x4 or AWD vehicles when replacing just one two or three tires AND NOT THE COMPLETE SET AS REQUIRED BY EVERY AWD AND 4X4 AUTO MANUFACTURER. DON'T BE A VICTIM... BE A WISE CONSUMER.... AND GET AN ATTORNEY IF YOU BECAME ONE ALREADY....

Tank almost empty and husband put diesel in our 2001 rav 4 petrol car. car drove for a little while and has stopped and won't start. what needs to be done to rectify problem. thanks

luckily deisel in a gas engine will not wreck a motor but you have to take the tank off and drain it completely. when full of gas again may burp a bit but in no time purrs like a kitten....luck that wasnt a diesel with getting gas put in it that will wreck a diesel if you start an run it if no start same u can drain it off.flush tank ....but with a gas engine a little diesel will probably black smoke a little but should clean more than harm...thanks for using fixya.

Automatic gear shift in 94 toyota tercel stuck

what is stuck?

the linkage or the cable from the shifter to the trans.?

block the tires so the car can not roll away...
open the hood and remove the cable from the shifter on the transmission.
see if you can manualy move the shifter on the trans.
if that moves... you may need to replace the cable (shift linkage)

Transmission won't engage in Toyota Tercel

pop off the cap on your clutch reservoir, if it's empty fill it up, leave the cap off, and then pump the clutch 20 times to try to get air out, that should work.
